We might be able to loan a manager in until the end of the season. :D

Something we'll only find out if we sign him?

This overhaul is a bit odd. Some of the players being moved on have only fairly recently arrived. I can't tell what the club's motivation is.

Is it:

A) The players want out as an individuals (i.e. Homesick/better deals in china etc);
B) The players are now surplus to requirements as they're not considered good enough;
C) The club needs to sell to make some money;
D) Ollie wants to make his mark on the team and get in the players he wants to?

I suppose it might be a combination of all of the above.

If it's (A), then there's not a lot we can do about it, but perhaps a few wins and a better team spirit might've prevented it.
If it's (B), then that's not a ringing endorsement of our scouting/transfer policy in recent times.
If it's (C), then these are new times for the club looking to make comparatively small profits on players. Could it suggest these kind of small profits are what we''re looking to achieve regularly on new signings? Ferdinand has said, I think, that we''ll be a selling club now.
If it's (D), then what was the point of a DOF in the first place? Or maybe it just marks a more flexible approach to the policy now we have a new manager.

I'd quite like a new realistic statement of intent from the club about what we're aiming to achieve and how we're planning on achieving it.

If it's (E), then we are back on the merry go round of a never settled squad, inconsistent results, fans wanting new players/ managers to "solve" the problem.

I've added my thoughts to your list but I don't expect the club to announce any statement of intent as the latest appointment has had the opposite effect to the one they were hoping for I suspect. When is the next fans forum scheduled for?

Norwich looking to recoup the £2.5 million they paid for Sergi Canos as he's fallen out with their manager (weirdly it looks like loads of the squad have but they're backing the manager over the squad!)

He was very good for Brentford who are looking to buy him along with Leeds.

I'd rate him higher than Luke Freeman.

19 and surely will have some sell on value.

£2 million seems too much for Freeman.

I'm not sure we would have been after Freeman and Lua Lua would we?

We'd better not arrange any friendlies with Den Haag.

Always hard to know if a player is like Austin and can score goals at any level or just making hay in the sunshine of the Scotish second tier.

Agreed. There are plenty of players from the Scottish divisions who don't make it. Even if he signed and only scored every 3 matches he'd be the best goal scorer we've got.

Right now Hibs would beat QPR.
